The molding compounds are available unreinforced, reinforced with glass fibers or minerals and also reinforced with long-glass fibers for special applications. Ultramid® is noted for its high mechanical strength, stiffness and thermal stability. In addition, Ultramid® offers good toughness at low temperatures, favourable sliding friction behaviour and can be processed without any problems. Owing to its excellent properties, this material has become indispensable in almost all sectors of engineering for a wide range of different components and machine elements, as a high-grade electrical insulation material and for many special applications.
